Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a modified amino acid that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it is converted into ATP (cellular fuel). ALC is a highly bioavailable form of L-Carnitine that can cross the blood-brain barrier, where it helps to manage oxidative damage, supports mitochondrial function and helps to maintain normal neurotransmitter activity. Clinical studies suggest that ALC helps to maintain optimal neurological health.

Acetyl L-Carnitine has shown promise in spinal cord injuries and non-verbal autistics. My grandson, who is 7 yrs. old and severely autistic, was recently placed on Acetyl L-Carnitine 500 mg. daily. Within two weeks, he began to verbalize. Though he doesn't have speech like a normal developing child, Acetyl L-Carnitine has definitely helped launch him into verbalization.

Excellent energy booster + increased focus

I started to use this product during to loose weight faster. It is hard to evaluate, what was the impact for this purpose, but I experienced much better workouts. I could continue to increase weights despite reducing calories for 4 weeks in a row! In addition, I became much more focused doing my office job... I suppose it did its work to improve efficiency of dieting as well, as I reached my goal - lost 10 kg in 4 month. Click "yes" if you liked my comment :)

Potent positive effects and one critical negative effect
Posted by BuddhaBrain on Jul 24, 2017 | Verified Purchase
This supplement gave me extra mental energy, boosted mental functions, positive and stable mood, and worsening of sleep issues. ● I bought this supplement with the purpose of clearing my brainfog. I have tried the supplement for about 2 month a few times a week. I have taken it in the morning at doses ranging from 150 to 1000 mg. Of the 34 different supplements i so far have tried to beat brainfog, Acetyl-L-Carnitine is the only one that has a strong and generalized positive effect on my brain. After 30 min from i took it i noticed faster and clearer thinking, less confusion, better short-term memory, i recall old memories better, better concentration. And my mood got lighter, much less anxiety, easier to handle social situations. I felt focused, energized, motivated, "ready to go". ● When i took about 150 mg i didn't feel any effect. 500 - 800 mg gave me positive effects. When i took 1000 mg or more i felt the effects best, but also a bit wired and restless. ● Now the big drawback i had with this supplement: I couldn't sleep the following night, or did only sleep very shallow and wake up all the time. Even at low dosage of 150 mg. ● I didn't have much placebo or nocebo expectation for the supplement. I just noticed later what happened when i had taken it. I didn't start taking or quitting any other supplements at the same time. ● I was searching for something to clear up my brainfog. Acetyl L Carnitine helped me much in that regard, and also improved my mood. It made me able to live life more fully. But it also made me unable to sleep so i had to give up taking this supplement. I have had some degree of sleep issue before taking the supplement, being vary of my sleep. As this supplement energize the whole brain, maybe it also energize prevalent sleep issues, strengthening the ability to be vary of sleep. Or perhaps the supplement is just not compatible with my brain. I will retry the supplement sometime in future when my sleep issues are completely healed. I don't know about the long term use of this supplement, it's possible that the effect on sleep can change after longer use. It's also possible that there is some supplement that can be taken to counter the sleep side-effect. This was my personal experience of this supplement. Others experience with this supplement may be different.
It's recommended. Excellent results after use. Skin becomes very smooth.
